Megan Thorp, Studio Owner
Megan holds a BA in Women Studies from University of Washington and has translated the knowledge she obtained in her studies to the creation of the New Body Pilates Studio.
Megan began practicing Pilates in 2004 and went on to a rigorous apprenticeship with senior Classical Pilates instructor Jessica Keith where she received her Classical Pilates certification.
Megan opened NBP in 2010 with the idea that you create the most effective change in the world when you’re working from a solid foundation of a healthy body, mind and spirit.
While she started as a Classical Pilates instructor, she’s found that her style has morphed into a more creative, contemporary approach, with the training philosophy that you want to work different muscle groups each class. Class is varied every time, keeping clients engaged and their bodies guessing.
Her overarching goal with NBP is to create a platform where clients can learn about their bodies, proper ways to move and strengthen correctly for longevity, providing them with the basis to live their best lives. The community that has formed at NBP has been a huge bonus!
She is passionate about her athletic endeavors including yoga, snowboarding, HIIT, backpacking, hiking, and paddle boarding and has found that Pilates has improved her athletic performance more so than any other form of exercise. While she specializes in working with athletes, she has had clients ranging in age from 18 to 75+ and is happy to work around and through bodily limitations and injuries.
